12:00-1:00: The New Normal: How will Covid-19 Impact Urban Infrastructure?

The physical infrastructure of U.S. cities has been shaped throughout its history by its response to disasters. In New York, the cholera epidemics that began in 1832 led to the implementation of a centralized water supply system starting in the 1840s, and the blizzard of 1888, which stopped all surface movement, resulted in the construction of an underground subway system. With a significant portion of the Country’s population now working from home due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, there have been major shifts in demand on our infrastructure systems. How will our infrastructure respond post-Covid 19, as we define a new normal for urban living?

1:00-2:00: Advancing Vision Zero in the Suburbs

Montgomery County, Maryland, is paving the way as the first suburban jurisdiction to adopt Vision Zero, a policy to eliminate traffic-related fatalities and severe injuries. It took 50 years to construct a suburban roadway network that prioritizes motor vehicle travel over walking and bicycling. Bold interventions and long-range master plans are needed to re-envision high-speed suburban roadways as safe multimodal corridors. This webinar will present strategies for applying Vision Zero in suburban communities, where the premise of the built environment is the ability to travel quickly over long distances. The panelists will draw on their experience in Montgomery County – in implementing short-term interventions to address immediate safety concerns, reimaging a suburban corridor through a long-range master plan, and identifying context-specific improvements to reduce crashes and crash severity. 


Wade Holland, Vision Zero Coordinator, Montgomery County Government

Jesse Cohn, Transportation Planner Coordinator, Montgomery County Planning Department 

Jessica McVary, Acting Master Plan Supervisor, Montgomery County Planning Department

Maren Hill, Planner Coordinator, Montgomery County Planning Department
